Survival horror is a genre of gaming that always brings the most interesting- albeit bizarre and twisted- story lines to the forefront. Developer Punchline and publisher Atlus are holding nothing back with their latest, the enigmatically titled, Rule of Rose. The game follows the story of a woman named Jennifer who is riding the bus one night. A small child on the bus asks her to read him a story and then quite abruptly hops off, disappearing into the night. Jennifer being more curious than she should be, she goes after the boy, quickly realizing she is where she is not wanted.
